The unique, artisanal production of Kharmohre, a six-thousand-year old handicrafted legacy from ancient Iran, has been kept alive by the Saadatmand family from the city of Qom, Iran. Kharmohre, with its mystical blue color, has become an integral part of Middle Eastern culture as generation after generation has worn it both for jewelry and as a charm believed to bring good luck.
In 1963, German Iranologist Hans Wulff discovered the city of Qom, Iran was the only remaining place in the world where Kharmohre was still produced. Wulff began referring to the production of Kharmohre as the “Qom Technique.” Kharmohre of Qom has been registered as a cultural heritage of Iran since 2010.
